I knew this was going to be the mini one on one post. He's lucky this wasn't a real game. next shift he would have been buried.

The best part for me is the reaction of the poor kid in net.

And yes, if this had been an actual game the kid would have been picking up his teeth in the next period.

glad to see mini one on one is still around. Yesterday was the 20 year anniversary of Ron Tugnut stopping 70 saves at Boston garden. I remember John Cusack was going crazy and couldn't think of anything else to say and blurted out, "What a Tugnut!"

Gotta love Derek Sanderson reminiscing about doing blow in the locker room between periods.

Interesting trivia: Derek was the highest paid professional athlete in 1972.

My father almost named me Derek after him. Also the urban legend has it that Jimmy Buffett wrote the "hockey" song Boat drinks based on a night that revolved around Derek Sanderson's bar in Boston.

Derek was a really great hockey player. Along with lot of other things it was he who fed Orr for that iconic Stanley Cup winning goal in May of '70.
He anchored the penalty killing line, pioneered the sweep check and helped serve as enforcer for those late 60s & early 70s Bruin squads.
If he's reducing himself to caricature now with stories of blow between periods (which had to have been after '72) then that saddens me. Sounds like he maybe forgot who he used to be.

Derek's story is definitey one of Rags to Riches back to Rags and then back to Riches again. He spiraled out of control for many years but has since become at one time a successful commentator, business man and motivational speaker.
